The world lost a true visionary with the sudden passing of Ken Block. Our hearts are broken.
Rally car driver, genius marketer, savvy businessman, motorsports enthusiast. Husband and father. Catalyst for change. These words do little to capture the dynamic and driven individual that was Ken Block.
Ken started his motorsports adventure with us in the early 2000s and showed remarkable talent behind the wheel. His passion for rally combined with his marketing and creative acumen fundamentally changed motorsports marketing. His strategies, his creative talent, his focus, and his passion came together to work so well for our little growing sport of rally in the USA and then subsequently impacted car culture as a whole. He was an icon, hero and legend.
Even with his success, Ken remained a genuine down to earth guy who loved what he did and loved his family. Our hearts are with his wife Lucy and his three children. Rally in peace, Ken.
